Your child should be taking the time to create a weekly revision timetable in preparation for their PPEs which will begin the week commencing 12th October. At this stage, we expect a minimum of 5 hours of revision per week. Students are welcome to complete this revision at home or in the Study Zone. (The Study Zone is a quiet area available for students to use after school. Staff will be available to support with any questions.)
During tutor time, students explore various techniques and strategies to support their independent revision. The “thinking about thinking” documents will allow you to encourage and monitor your child’s revision at home.
